Description Leonard den Ottolander 2001-08-04 12:56:00 UTC
Description of Problem: A lot of people report bugs concerning sort (textutils) (see bugreports 18766, 16861, 20975, 43564 etc.). It is probably 
a good idea to set either LC_COLLATE and/or LC_ALL according to the locale during installation. F.e., most people in European and 
American countries will expect sort to behave case sensitive (LC_COLLATE="C sort").

setting LANG=en_US tells the system to use LC_COLLATE="en_US".  This is correct
behavior.
